My daughter is 2 weeks old. I have been breastfeeding exclusively and am wondering when and if it will get "easier". My nipples are still very sore and I am afraid to go out in public with my newborn and 2 year old because of the fear my baby will be hungry and the toddler will run away from me.
My baby feeds at times for 20-30 minutes on each side, and at other times she will feed for a few minutes on a side and fall asleep. When I go to lay her in her crib, she wakes up and starts screaming. This process can repeat itself for hours. My baby will not take a pacifire from me.
Any words of encouragement or help are greately appreciated. Thank you!

oh hon.... every kid is different.... what may have worked for your first may or may not work for the second. Do what is best for your family.
I loved bf but my best friend couldnt do it with hers.... and she is soooo granola. It absolutely killed her to stop. But her son is fine and thriving as a 5'8" 12 yr old who gets straight As.
So you do what is best for your whole family. (((((( hugs )))))))
